PDF files Database

I am currently running FM Server Advanced. I have clients that connect through both FM Pro and IWP. Different applications for each one and developed for each environment accordingly. There are pdf files that are created on a daily basis. These pdf files need to be saved for future reference. I was asked if Filemaker could handle organizing all pdf files. Each record will have multiply pdf files and the pdf files need to be accessible from both the FM pro and IWP. I have developed database but have very little experience with embedding pdf files into Filemaker. What is the best course of action? Do I need a plugin? Do container fields will do or web viewer? Users will need to have access to these pdf files in both environment. Each pdf file will contain 25-40 pages worth of relevant information. Each is about 2MB-3MB. Has anyone done something like this?
